Mac Outlook adds multiple time zones features – available to Insider Fast with Office 365 subscription

Outlook for Mac just gets more powerful for you to manage your time across different time zones. We have just shipped two of our most-requested calendar features: display second time zone on Calendar grid, and allow setting of start/end time zones in events.

These features are now available to Insider Fast in version 16.11(180214) and after. Enabling second time zone in Calendar grid requires an O365 subscription.

This makes groups a flawless arrangement where you can impart and meet with anybody inside or outside your association – regardless of whether they are not a Teams client. With these changes, here are 9 hints to having more profitable gatherings with participants in and outside your association:

By default, all attendees who are not from your organization will arrive in a virtual lobby after which they will have to be admitted to join the actual meeting. This is done to enhance the privacy of your meetings – but also gives you time to make sure you’re ready for an important customer meeting. In the future, an admin will have the option to update the settings to allow anonymous users to join directly without having to go into lobby.

#4 – Mute the noisy attendees.  Tired of hearing a dog barking? In large meetings (> 5 people), anyone who joins after the meeting has started, will join as muted thereby reducing noise in the meeting. Further, if you notice any noise from others, you can mute that person, or mute everyone, easily from the roster.   If someone has been muted, they’ll get a notification letting them know. They’ll be able to unmute themselves if they need to be heard. If you ever need to mute all the other participants in a meeting, head to your meeting roster and select ‘Mute all’. Everyone will get a notification and be able to unmute themselves if they need to.

#5 – Join a meeting or initiate a phone call without a plug-in.  Who has time for downloads?! You can now enjoy a plugin-less experience in a web browser where a meeting or a call just works!  You can simply go to teams.microsoft.com from Edge or Chrome and to join a Teams meeting or from Edge to initiate a 1:1 call.

Rest assured that your desktop screen, or notifications are not shared when sharing your content in the meeting.

Cortana as an individual computerized collaborator is extraordinary at keeping you on track with your duties or reminding you about your mother’s birthday. These capacities are surfaced normally in view of Cortana can comprehend client’s purpose. To conjure outsider aptitudes on Cortana, clients needed to state an extraordinary expression, called a summon expression, as domino “Open”, or “Approach Darksky for the climate one weekend from now”. This isn’t a decent client encounter for a partner since clients frequently overlook how to conjure an ability. We are glad to declare that clients can conjure outsider aptitudes on Cortana in an exceptionally common manner.

“Breaking obstructions… Pushing limits”

Cortana would now be able to keenly propose outsider abilities when a client approaches her for something. By utilizing the energy of Bing Search and our times of interest in AI, importance, and positioning, we have conveyed a more characteristic ordeal to Cortana clients. Presently clients can normally find an extensive variety of outsider Cortana abilities and achieve those assignments with Cortana’s assistance.

Rather than remembering the invocation phrase for a skill, users can now just speak naturally, and Cortana will recommend relevant 3rd party skills to complete the taskRather than remembering the invocation phrase for a skill, users can now just speak naturally, and Cortana will recommend relevant 3rd party skills to complete the taskThe experience is currently available for voice queries on Cortana for Windows and will very soon light up on other Cortana endpoints like our mobile app, the Harmon Kardon Invoke Speaker, and so on.
